As a child I used to dread Oat soup (Oats Soup), but that changed when I moved to the United States and I started craving my grandmother’s food! My grandmother did not use written recipes, so I usually cook her dishes from her from my memories of her with her in the kitchen. I might also ask my mom, aunts or uncles for her recipes from her, but no one ever knows the exact ingredients or amounts that mommy used. I have been making this oatmeal soup for about 10 years, trying to replicate Mommy’s recipe, and I think I am finally getting close!

What is Oat Soup?

It is a soup made with oats, vegetables and spices. It’s very popular in Colombia and it was one of my grandmother’s favorite soups, which she made often. She always used beef broth for her oatmeal soup, but you can use chicken broth or even vegetable broth for a vegetarian version. You can also add shredded cooked chicken to this oats soup recipe if you want.
